jim graham lives in and represents the area of morgans and is deeply disturbed by these images. he says the boldness of the crowd is causing an increased security concern and one of two things needs to be done about it. >> i think it's getting worse rather than better and we need a commitment from the police for more police or we've got to say we can't sustain this level of night life here. >> reporter: businesses are also being impacted by an image of adams morgan they say is tarnishing with violence. val morgan has had this bookstore for years. >> it can't go on. the police are overwhelmed. >> reporter: the video causing the stir has even caught the attention of those who live in and frequent the area. >> i've seen fall-on brawls between street gangs and cops. >> you don't have a reality of drunkenness. >> reporter: earlier today, we tried and talked to d.c. police

lower 90s. you factor in just a slight increase in humidity, it's going to feel quite muggy. our air quality is suffering as well. forecast is going to stay quiet. i'm showing you the satellite and radar. not a lot happening. this is going to remain the case as we head into sunday afternoon and even through most of the day on monday before we start to see a few subtle changes begin to take place. right now, though, temperatures are really backing down. we have mainly clear skies overnight. our winds are calm to light at this hour. that means we've dropped out of the 80s and into the 70s for most of the metro area. the city center is still holding on to 81 degrees but down to a very comfortable 71 down, looking at 69 for reston. definitely comfortable sleeping weather, especially if you get up early tomorrow morning. the weather headlines looking good as well. we'll keep the clear skies. a passing cloud from time to time but in all a lot of sunshine early tomorrow as you stone out. it will be hot tomorrow. we're back into the lower 90s.
we're going to keep it mainly dry, but you'll notice our winds start to pick up a little bit from the south and southwest tomorrow. that's going to slowly ease some moisture back in. still a good day tomorrow. but our air quality suffering just a little bit as we slip down into a code orange which means it's unhealthy for sensitive groups out there. then i'm also tracking changes in the forecast that will bring back more of that cloud cover and even rain chances as we head into tuesday. the futurecast is quiet. mainly clear skies tonight. we're still benefiting from high pressure. as that slides off toward the east, it will start to open the door for more of the southwest wind flow and more cloud cover come monday afternoon. but at least headed into early monday morning, we're still looking pretty good. overnight tonight, temperatures are going down, but not too far. maybe those middle range 60s for most of us. we'll stick closer to the 70 degree mark, the closer you are to the city, but very comfortable sleeping weather. you might want to open a window and let that breeze move on through. tomorrow morning looks pretty
good as well. a very quiet start with lots of sunshine, and then in the afternoon, we start to increase the winds out of the south close to 10 miles per hour winds. that's going to pull in a little bit more moisture, but tomorrow's humidity values are still looking pretty good. take a look at some of these temperatures. annapolis 89 degrees. on the western side of the mountains, very nice, 80 degree temperatures. so comfortable there. most of us should see a little bit of heat building in for sunday, but we're going to continue that trend into monday and tuesday as well. here's your wakeup weather for tomorrow morning. mainly near the 70 degree mark for 6:00 a.m. by 8:00, we're headed up into the 80s, but by the time we get toward midday and late day, it is definitely going to feel like a hot july forecast. we have made one little change for the forecast since 6:00. we'll be a little bit warmer on tuesday into the middle 90s, potential to go a little higher
than that, but it all depends on how heavy those storms are coming through. we're definitely seeing rain coming our way. >> july, like you say. so dot nats win -- dot nats win for the birthday girl? >> no, no win for me. but i had a nice birthday dinner outside. it was a nice night for a ballgame, but not necessarily for nats fans. once again they keep it close but once again, come out on the wrong end. were the orioles and red sox able to act like gentlemen tonight? the best revenge is sweet revenge. those and more coming up on sports. what makes the sleep number store different?
you walk into a conventional mattress store, it's really not about you. they say, "well, if you want a firm bed you can lay on one of those, if you want a soft bed you can lay on one of those." we provide the exact individualization that your body needs. this is your body there. you can see a little more pressure in the shoulders and in the hips. then they start telling us, "well, yeah, i feel sore right there in the morning." my lower back. that's right where i've been experiencing pain. now you can feel what happens as we raise your sleep number setting and allow the bed to contour to your individual shape. oh yeah. it's really molding to my body. when you find somebody's perfect level of comfort, that may be the first time they've ever felt a bed that feels exactly like they're hoping it would. you can adjust it however you want
so you don't have to worry about buying the wrong mattress. once they get our bed, they're like, "why didn't i do this sooner?" queen mattresses start at just $699. and during our summer closeout, get the lowest prices of the season on our most popular bed sets. experience the sleep number difference. only at one of our 400 sleep number stores. is there a prize in there? oh, there's a prize, all right. is it a robot? no. is it a jet plane? nope. is it a dinosaur? [ laughs ] [ male announcer ] inside every box of heart healthy cheerios are those great tasting little o's made from carefully selected oats that can help lower cholesterol. stickers? uh-uh. a superhero? ♪ kinda. [ male announcer ] and we think that's the best prize of all. ♪
when it comes to the nationals, the word consistent may not be the first word that comes to your mind, but if you look at their recent home stand, you could make a case for it. the nats last six games have been decided by one run. they started off winning three in a row and now they've lost three in a row, all by one run. jason marquis looking to help his team get back on the board. todd helton with this solid hit. the nats get on the board, in the always exciting groundout. exciting stuff tonight. top of the ninth, laynce nix keeps the nats in the game with a nice diving catch. rob smith gets the inning ending double play to the bottom of the ninth. jayson werth or worthless as the fans were calling him tonight hits into a game-ending double play with ryan zimmerman

for the nfl lockout. federal judge arthur boilen scheduled another session on july 19th but encouraged both sides to keep meeting until that date. the league and the player met for two days this week in new york before stopping for the weekend. they plan to resume on monday. when you consider the u.s. woman's soccer team is the number one team in the world, you can bet the expectations are quite high for a world cup win. and nothing less. but things definitely have a daunting road ahead, beginning with the quarter final matchup tomorrow against powerhouse brazil. in some world cup action today, it was a shocker in germany for germany. the team couldn't score in regulation. in extra time, only one goal scored of the match. japan stuns defending champ germany 1-0. first ever race at kentucky motor speedway. this one goes down to the wire. green white checkered flag and kyle busch gets the win in
kentucky. finally tonight, something you don't see every day from the camping world truck series with 16 months to go, austin dixon's hood flies up in front of his windshield. don't know if you ever had that happen when you're on the road, but probably not a good idea to keep driving. he makes it to pit lane and the crew pops off the hood. he gets back on the track. he did end up finishing 14th. you don't really normally see the hood just pop up in front of him. >> yeah. he's a lucky man. >> he's lucky, yeah. >> absolutely. thanks for watching, everybody. we'll see you back here tomorrow. bye. can i eat heart healthy without giving up taste?
